Let me first start off by saying I am sorry the new post didn’t come out when it should have. I started playing Wednesday night, expecting to have the new post done by 11:00 PM. However, the inability to buy a horse that I thought nothing of in my last post really got under my skin this time around. I thought it was a one time glitch in Markarth but apparently not. In an alternate save file for Grawnk I traveled to every city where you could buy a horse, but the dialogue for the option to buy a horse simply does not exist.
The internet has let me down for the first time. There is no mention of such a problem existing in any forum or site. I tried disabling all the mods that I thought could possibly affect this. As it turns out, there were only a few candidates that seemed even remotely possible, and they did not work. At this point, I don’t want to have to disable every mod I use on the offhand chance that it fixes the issue. On that same alternate file, I even advanced the main questline thinking that maybe Skyrim doesn’t let you buy a horse till you get that out of the way with. No dice.
I know you are thinking I am being way too anal about this, and of course you’d be right. I am being way too anal, but I can’t think of any reason why it shouldn’t work and it’s driving me crazy. I can buy a horse fine with two other characters of mine, so it looks to be limited to just the Grawnk save file for whatever reason.
I determined I was able to spawn a horse and ride it, and it would act like a bought horse, but I would prefer that to be my last resort, as it just wouldn’t sit well with me for Grawnk. I know it seems weird, but there you go.
So, I am curious to see if any of you all know what this is about/have encountered it before/have any suggestions whatsoever. Any thoughts or insights you have would be great. Do not worry, though. I will go ahead with the story for now, but I am working today and don’t get off till midnight, so best case scenario is the post being ready on Friday June 15 around 5-6 AM. Again, I am so sorry for the delay. I just couldn’t move past it, and before I knew it, hours had gone by. Sigh.
Oh, and here’s a screenshot I guess:
